The dry, shaded hike beneath the canopy of conifers along loose dirt and pine mulch accented by decorator boulders is easy on the paws, and the wide-angle perspective from the top, a visual treat. The hike kicks off with a stiff ascent before tapering off to a more gradual incline. A trail marker along the way indicates that you are hiking in the Giant Sequoia National Monument.

My sons and I greatly enjoyed this hike, even though we were somewhat out of shape. We planned for a three hour round trip but we ended up spending an extra hour at the top just enjoying the view and looking through the comments others have written in the box at the top. I think you can see for an hundred miles (though seeing the smog over the valley is unpleasant). My dad and I had gone on this hike together several times about 30 years ago so it was very nostalgic for me. I had forgotten how beautiful the forests are here (or maybe it has improved in the past 30 years).
